Safari Vase by Tamara Aladin. Very collectible.
Beautiful clean lines. A striking vase by Tamara Aladin.
Tamara Aladin is well known as a prolific designer for Finnish glass company Riihimaki Lasi.
She spent her whole career with the company from the 1950s until it closed in the 1970s.
Aladin is one of a triumvirate of woman designing for the company at the time. Alongside Tamara was Nancy Still, and Helena Tynell. Although there is little evidence that they were close, or supportive of each other’s endeavours.
Tamara sent her designs in from her home in Helsinki. She was a prolific designer with over 150 designs credited to her career with Riihimaki. This is reflected in the exhibition of her designs, and life, at the Finnish Glass Museum in 2010. The exhibition celebrated the centenary of Riihimaki Lasi Company opening.
